WHY CHOOSE DCS

FREE TRIAL

A VIBE LIKE NO OTHER!

WELCOME TO THE #1 MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL IN VANCOUVER

“I want to build a fun place with positive and encouraging people, a warm environment, and an energy level like no other. Here we all come together and push one another to be better individuals while learning fitness and martial arts.”

— RYAN DIAZ, OWNER / HEAD INSTRUCTOR

“I believe respect is earned and not given. I do not tell you that you have to bow to me or tell you to call me sensei or master. If you choose to bow out of respect to your instructor, or as a greeting of hello that is of your choosing and not because you are told you have to. Respect amongst each other in the gym is a huge must. All egos will be left at the door, we are all equals at DCS is a rule that will be strictly enforced. I want to earn everyone’s respect and don’t expect it to be given. And the first step to that is respecting everyone that comes in through the doors of DCS.”

I’ve taught thousands of students over the course of my training, from all over the world, all walks of life, and of all ages. I’ve been teaching since the age of 16 and know the most important aspects of being a good coach, trainer, and instructor. What works for me may not work for you. We all have different body types, we’re all not the same weight or height, we don’t even have the same reach. I find the best techniques and most appropriate methods specifically tailored for each individual.  As a result of my world travels I’ve had the opportunity to learn all these different and new moves and offer them to you. I also understand that positivity is key. The goal of my instructors and I is to make DCS a positive and fun environment. We strive to make people believe in themselves and want them to believe that anything is possible.

REAL PASSION

“Martial Arts is my life. I have lived my life as a modern day samurai and travelled all over the world fighting and learning so I can bring you the most up to date techniques and drills. Fighting is my passion and now I get to teach that passion to you”

— RYAN DIAZ, OWNER / HEAD INSTRUCTOR

REAL RESPECT

We do not tell you to call us senseis, or sempeis, or kru or master. Our belief is respect is earned not given. We respect everyone that walks through the doors of DCS and hope to earn your respect as you train at our facility.
